It's Kind of Like Pomade, Right?

At the moment I'm trying to pick clumps of children's Motrin out of my hair.
In an attempt to bring down a 102.6 fever in Lo (who now also has Hand Foot and Mouth), I tried convincing her nicely to take the medicine. Explaining it would help her feel "not on fire" (she says she feels on fire, and I'm sure she does).
She wouldn't take it, so I kind of forced her to take it, because she NEEDS to take it.
Crocodile tears streaming down her cheeks, she drank the little cup as I held her, trying to make her feel better.
I thought she had swallowed, and then she let out a big sob.
Thus spitting Motrin all over my hair and face.
Happy President's Day.

I still use a squirter for all my kids when giving medicine. You put it on the side of the mouth in the back and they can't spit it out. :-) Good luck with the sick kids...not fun. :-) Lauree

Sounds like your President's Day was just as fabulous as mine. LOL.

ah, the joy of medicine in your hair, on your shirt, or elsewhere. I have to sit on my kids so that they can't move their arms, and squeeze their cheeks while I give it to them and then rub my hand over their mouths to get them to's similiar to a drinking game...
